Alhamdulillah!!!! I just had a telephone conversation which make me happy and relieved. Finally, several medical-checkups in HUKM were done;
- First, on the physiological body (REFER to https://undomiel84.wordpress.com/2015/03/30/the-downside-effect-of-athleticism-a-mission-to-live-my-1st-priority/;
- Second is on the deteriorating eyesight (which is quite a strange phenomenon where the right one is of normal eyesight with ‘blurry power’ as little as 50; whereas the left one is as much as 600 – equivalent to my own nearsightedness!!);
- Third is on the psychological trauma which initiated us visited The Islamic Centre of As-Syifa’ in Bangi last year on 20th September 2014 (REFER to https://undomiel84.wordpress.com/2014/09/20/my-promise-pusat-rawatan-islam-as-syifa-bandar-baru-bangi-seksyen-15/)
That is why I feel related to her. Because we have gone through several phases that have uncanny similarities. I’d thought the same before.
Previously, it was scheduled that the eye check-up was on 9th February but someone chickened-out and played nonchalant. But when we talked through this, it cannot be shunned off. Operation to replace the cornea marred by the childhood incident of “nail-thrust-into-the-eyes” (eeeek!!! I know!!) need to be carried as soon as possible. Therefore, 11th August would be the upcoming date for the optical check-up.
I am drawn to people with good heart. Some people are big and brawny, but they have the heart of a saint.
I had initially proposed that apart from using the traditional and Islamic approaches to alleviate the “inside turbulence”, a visit to psychologist is very much needed. Being a Science-educated as well as having a nurse as mother, I am already grown with the logical explanation of Science but also hold the principle of ‘alternative treatment’ as well (being a Malay & a Moslem, you can’t escape that!).
Nevertheless, as the other party is of the “practical-and-a-uniform-affiliated-chauvinist”, the idea of visiting psychologist is considered to be a taboo that it is for “mentally disorder people”. That is an antiquated perception by people who are ignorant; in fact most typical Malaysians do see from that angle. I have been persuading for the umpteenth times but proved to no avail. My suggestions always shunned off by the defensive shields. OK, I decided to bail out from the suggestion. But tonight when I was told that there was a ‘spur-of-the-moment” tete-a-tete with HUKM psychologist, I am so elated by that revelation!
And, the chauvinist (hahaha!) now felt a few differences with that psychological approaches and felt healed with the few psychological tests conducted by the HUKM psychologist. I am quite tickled with the idea that when someone who has firm believes in the medical and sport sciences initially refused to see psychologist due to the Malaysians’ “mental disorder” taboo but then was deeply enthralled by the immediate positive effect from the session. This somehow prompted another subsequent upcoming sessions!
I am happy to know this. My No.1 priority is the health. And this what matters the most for me, now.
